Kia Cer­ato sedan

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

Un­veiled in Detroit in Jan­uary, Kia’s new-gen Cer­ato sedan ar­rives here to­wards the end of May. Rid­ing on an ex­ten­sively re­vised plat­form (as per Hyundai’s Elantra and new-gen i30), the Cer­ato’s body-in-white is 16 per­cent stiffer and its wind­screen cowl has moved 127mm rear­ward to bring some Stinger-es­que styling siz­zle. The sedan will ini­tially of­fer three trim lev­els – S, Sport and Sport Plus – pow­ered by Kia’s car­ry­over 2.0-litre atmo four, though a GT ver­sion is mooted by year’s end, fea­tur­ing an un­con­firmed 1.6-litre turbo-petrol donk and IRS (as per i30 SR).
